Endotoxin Testing

Endotoxins are substances found associated with the outer cell wall of Gram-negative bacteria such as E. coli that can induce an immune response including fever (pyrogenic) in healthy individuals when exposed. Medical products such as injectable drugs and sterile water for injection are required by the FDA to be tested for endotoxin prior to use. Endotoxin can also be found in the indoor environment when Gram-negative bacteria are introduced or allowed to proliferate and may pose a hazard to occupants.  

EMSL Analytical, Inc. provides testing services for Endotoxin in Water, Medical products, and Environmental samples (dust, air, surfaces, etc.) using Gel clot and quantitative Kinetic-QCL (Chromogenic) methods capable of detecting as little as 0.005 endotoxin units (EU) per product.
